We have been going every 6 months for the last year, and it´s one less thing to worry about our trip. It´s like going back home, very clean, very safe, very close to Germantown and the center of Chestnut hill is walking distance.

Anam Cara Accommodations is so wonderful, and feels like a home away from home. Everything you need to have a wonderful stay. Owner is so loving and will do almost everything for you to make you feel at home. It would not be a perfect vacation without Anam Cara.

I stayed at Anam Cara for three months while in Philadelphia on business. Let me tell, just finding a furnished apartment that would allow my large dog was quite a task! But I couldn't believe my luck to find one that was in such a fantastic neighborhood and with all the other amenities that I wanted. First of all, if... More

The decor is homey and cozy with plenty of closets and storage, fully equipped kitchen, dining area, desk and comfortable bedding. There is a laundry room, too.... More

My wife and I stayed in apartment #4 (studio) from November of 2012 through February of 2013. Our experience was excellent. Street parking is readily available and never in short supply. We had two cars and were always able to park within 100 ft of the entrance. The neighborhood is quiet, safe, and friendly and only a few minutes walk... More

When I was transitioning between jobs I had an awkward 1 month that I needed a place to stay, and this turned out to be perfect! It came furnished with all basic needs and in a safe and convenient location. It was a lifesaver for me because it's nearly impossible to find decent short term leases in the area...definitely preferable... More

Stayed for a month at Anam Cara when we were otherwise homeless. Excellent experience! It was the hottest summer on record in Philadelphia, but the trusty window air-conditioner kept us cool day and night. The place is comfortable, convenient, and well-kept. A nice homey feeling to it. Excellent value. Wifi is a BIG plus. Teresa the owner is attentive and... More
